    The 2022 ASHRAE Annual Conference technical program is comprised of eight tracks, selected to represent areas of focus common among ASHRAE membership.




    Fundamentals and Applications:  Fundamentals are the foundation for understanding applications in engineering. Key components of ASHRAE fundamentals include thermodynamics, psychometrics, fluid and mass flow. This track provides opportunities for papers and presentations of varying levels across a large topic base. Concepts, design elements and shared experiences for theoretical and applied concepts of HVAC&R design are included.   

    Track Chair: Erik D Sanchez esanchez@prmech.com


    HVAC&R Systems and Equipment:  HVAC&R systems and equipment are constantly evolving to address the changing requirements of the built environment.  Papers and programs in this track focus on the development of new systems and equipment, improvements to existing systems and equipment and the proper application and operation of systems and equipment.  

    Track Chair: Marites Calad mcalad@norman-wright.com


    Research Summit: Active research, and the exchange of those research findings, are critical to the development of our HVAC&R industry and built environment. The 9th annual research summit invites researchers to share those results, including ASHRAE-sponsored research and research of interest to the ASHRAE community. Researchers are invited to present papers, extended abstracts, seminars, forums or participate in panel discussions. The Research Summit includes a partnership with ASHRAE's archival journal, Science and Technology for the Built Environment.

    Track Chair: Brian Fronk  brian.fronk@oregonstate.edu


    Connected Buildings, Connected Communities: As buildings become smarter, and as sensor systems, internet connectivity and data collection become more ubiquitous, there are substantial opportunities to improve the performance and efficiency of buildings. Similarly, as renewable energy resources, including wind and solar energy and energy storage, becoming increasingly common, buildings can be used as electric grid assets, to strategically support energy efficiency and demand flexibility. To accomplish this requires many stakeholders, coordinated efforts and a diversity of buildings and buildings systems components and controls.

    Track Chair: Ahmed Abdel Salam  ahmed.abdel-salam@usask.ca


    Cold Climate Building System Design, Operation and Resilience: The design, construction and operation of buildings in cold climate regions which experience extreme winter conditions require specific considerations for the building envelope and HVAC&R systems and resulting thermal and hygrothermal performance. Resilience in the face of extreme temperature shifts, and in some cases remoteness and permafrost, should be considered to ensure building maintain interior design conditions. This track covers efforts and topics specifically focused on buildings, building systems and equipment in cold, arctic and subarctic climates.

    Track Chair: Davide Ziviani  dziviani@purdue.edu


    IAQ, Energy Use, Comfort and Health of Sustainable Buildings: Indoor environmental quality, energy use and efficiency and occupant comfort and health are all priorities buildings must balance. Sustainability priorities in buildings continue to increase, requiring careful consideration of how to achieve sustainability goals without sacrificing other building functions and owner/operator priorities. This track covers each of these topics, and how they interact and impact one another.

    Track Chair: Rafi Karim  rkarim@aeieng.com


    Professional Development and Education: As members of a professional organization, we not only participate for the great value of technical exchange, but also the interpersonal exchange. We recognize that the single greatest strength of our organization is its membership. This track is designed to allow those professionals and educators an opportunity to develop and share knowledge in the areas of presentation skills, leadership, team-building, understanding various business operations, lean collaboration strategies, interpersonal skills, etc., and an opportunity for educators to share knowledge in the teaching and education of current and future generations of professionals. Submissions to this track may lend themselves to interactive session types such as workshops, panels and forums.

    Buildings in the Aftermath of COVID-19: The pandemic has had significant impacts on how buildings are used, and the priorities associated with building operations to ensure a healthy environment for occupants. More people are working remotely; commercial building interior design and functionality and occupant use of these buildings, ventilation and system needs and building owner, operator and occupant priorities have been impacted. This track covers these topics as our buildings transition to design and operation in the aftermath of the pandemic.
